  • Virtual Genesis-Koinonia Gathering

    Thursday, 01 October 2020 - Thursday, 05 November 2020  

    The Episcopal Church Offices of Church Planting and Redevelopment, and Ethnic Ministries are partnering to offer a Virtual Genesis-Koinonia Gathering Oct. 1 – Nov. 5. The annual conference is designed to inspire, mentor, and support new community leaders as they plan and plant their ministries, and to connect with and thank the diocesan leaders who support and oversee new missional initiatives.

    The theme of this year’s Gathering is “What would be possible if…?” In his keynote address, the Rt. Rev. Mark Edington, bishop of the Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe, will reflect on what could be possible if we learn to embrace a new model of ministry – one that nurtures an ethos of participatory worship, leadership and mission. The training sessions offered during this four-week period include these topics: shared leadership models, bi-vocational church planting, working with a mission team, and facilitating transformative conversations, and more.
